NORMAN (AP) — Police in Norman have released the name of a man found dead inside his burned home on the city's east side and say both the death and the fire are suspicious.

Police say in a news release Thursday that the body of 51-year-old Patrick Burton was found Wednesday by firefighters who had put out the fire at Burton's home.

Police have not released a suspected cause of death and say evidence is still being collected at the scene. Police also say Burton's pickup is missing.

The truck is a white 2004 extended cab Chevrolet with Oklahoma tag 088AXI with a NASCAR license plate on the front bumper, a cow bell on the rear bumper and a white bed cover.
